Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot said he is enjoying his time at AC Milan as he labeled the club ‘amazing.’
Dalot joined Milan on a season-long loan from United during the summer transfer window after a 2019-20 campaign plagued by poor form and fitness problems.
“It’s been a great few months in terms of adaptation,” Dalot said before Milan’s win over Celtic on Thursday night. “Italy is similar to Portugal. The club is amazing, I’m happy to be here.
“I come every day with desire to train and play. The team-mates help me with the language and adapting to the city. I’ve been trying to adapt quickly, I’m learning Italian. The players, staff and everyone else at the club have been very helpful to me.
“It’s fantastic to learn the tactics of the game here in Italy. Having a coach close to the player always trying to teach and explain is great. Our relationship is not just manager-players. This helps me to improve.”
Milan have started the season brilliantly and are the surprise early pace-setters in Serie A, with a six-point lead over champions Juventus.
“We have a very good philosophy in terms of daily work at this club,” Dalot added. “We think game by game, we will try to win against Celtic, then we will shift our attention to the next game. This is the right mindset, and with it we can achieve great things this season.
“Milan is a big club, they are known for playing at the highest level of football, the Champions League, it’s a goal for us. Hopefully, with the right attitude, we can put Milan back to the top of Europe.”
